Innovative Solution Enables Patients to Refill Prescriptions via Mobile Phones
October 15, 2012 RALEIGH, NC – Kerr Drug, a visionary community pharmacy focused on delivering innovative solutions across North Carolina, has broadened its services with a new mobile application. Now, patients can easily refill prescriptions, and receive pickup and dosage reminders through the convenience of their mobile phones. Smartphone users can access the store locator, weekly specials, and do a quick-refill by scanning the QR code on prescription bottles. A text-messaging option for non-smartphone users enables patients to receive many of the same benefits.
"Kerr Drug delivers cutting edge solutions to improve our patients' health and make their lives easier," says Anthony "Tony" Civello, president and CEO of Kerr Drug. "A mobile option allows our patients to convert their phones into medical wallets to easily manage their prescriptions and access a wide range of our pharmacy services."
The new app and its mobile website, m.kerrdrug.com, operate on a secure network created by San Francisco-based mscripts, the leader in mobile pharmacy solutions. mscripts’ hosted, enterprise-grade solution is the platform for millions of direct, 2-way interactions between pharmacies and patients, resulting in greater medication adherence and enhanced customer satisfaction. The easy-to-use app is available as a free download through Apple iTunes, the Android Market, Blackberry App World or www.kerrdrug.com.
"Kerr Drug has a rich history of delivering innovative solutions to their patients with a unique focus on improving medication adherence," says Mark Cullen, CEO of mscripts. "This text and mobile application facilitate a direct dialogue between pharmacies and patients making it easier to refill prescriptions, keep current on medications and share information, thereby leading to a healthier life."
